Welcome to the University of Pennsylvania’s
Office of Government and Community Affairs.
We design and implement advocacy strategies to advance the University's mission and interests with federal, state, and city governments. We connect our campus community to neighbors, civic groups, and nonprofit organizations for meaningful engagement. We coordinate voter registration activities and organize campus polling places. At a time when communication, connectivity, and collaboration have never been more important, we link Penn’s partners in government and in the community with the critical thinkers, innovators, educators, and learners who power our nation’s first university.
